Thanks for the dijus for starting something like this, but this was done in 2006 by Stebs and the format worked well and will operate the same way

General Messages Best Poster 2007

Nominate three posters who you think have been the best in General Messages. Your reasons for posting can be anything from liking their posts, agreeing with them, entertainment value or for whatever reasons.

Order your nominations as follows:

1 - Poster A
2 - Poster B
3 - Poster C

In this scenario Poster A would get 3 points, Poster B, 2 points and Poster C, 1 point.

In a week's time (next Friday) I will count up the nominations and there will be 20 posters put into two semi-final polls from which the top 5 of each will come out. Then there will be a final poll to see who is the best GM poster of 2007.

1. Merton : Very intelligent guy, backs up his points in a clear and logical manner and if he isn't sure about a subject, doesn't try bluff and bullshit as if he knows it and he asks questions about it.

2. Sjengster: Very dry wit, doesn't make that many appearances these days, but makes them count.

3. Mister Q : The guy is a Roddick and Agassi fan and I think he is great, that alone should say enough. Very funny guy, knows quite a bit about the game, but isn't always obvious to people who don't look for these things.

Honourable mentions in no order to Shotgun, GlennMirnyi, Scarecrows, NTCTennisfan, KaxMisha, stebs, leng jai ( go the Haas love).

Several great posters missed out, GWH and MisterQ you'd be in but you'll get enough votes from others. ;) Also MrChopin is a great poster.

The reason is pretty much the same for all of them - all are quite knowledgeable and have a good understanding of the game and they all present their points in a very clear and logical way. As a result, debating tennis issues with them is very interesting and rewarding. The order is basically based on whose posts I have seen more of recently and relly does not mean much. I could just as well select any other permutation. I would have tried to squeeze GWH/PMK Is Innocent in there somewhere, but he will get enough votes from others anyway. Also, honorable mentions to Apemant, GlennMirnyi, Sjengster and Scarecrows.

They are all intelligent posters, who put their points over clearly, and back them up with reasons. Honourable mention to Sjengster - I really miss his tennis song lyrics!

1.Sjengster (most unbiased poster in MTF and very intelligent without ever beeing arrogant)
2.Stebs (intelligent, informative and polite)
3.NYCtennisfan (I always seem to agree with all his posts)

Honourable mentions:
Merton
Cmonaussie (really direct clumsy made threads which often starts great discussion about the history of the game, unfairly attacked for his style but surely give reasons for people to talk about when there is nothing else to be discussed)

Glennmirnyi (for entertainment value only and I have to thank his team Gremio for doing their job against Corinthians)

GHW (bossy, arrogant MTF dictator and Norwegian but I really cant deny his knowledge of tennis history, his understanding of the game and his informative and entertaining threads about former great characters in the sport I before did not know anything about, without him mtf would not be the same)

Kaxmisha (Like NYCtennisfan, I seem to agree with him all the time and it helps that he is swedish)

Totally agree. Definitely deserves honourable mention

Shotgun Talks sense, and does not go insane if you disagree with his views (same cannot be said of many others). Doesn't hurt that he is probably the only unbiased moderator around.

NYCTennisFan Also talks sense, and also does not go insane in language or in emoticon if you disagree with his point of view.

it would be helpful to somehow have posters put in a row because off the top of my head I can't name that many but I will command PMK aka GWB for lately being more informative and positive and less confrontational :)
